End of Life Services / Euthanasia

Deciding when to let go is a difficult decision

We understand.

At the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, we know that your pet is a member of the family. Losing your beloved companion is a painful experience. We also understand it shouldn’t be made more difficult with high costs. HSSA offers low-cost euthanasia and cremation services to the public so you have one less thing to worry about at this heart-wrenching time.

We offer this service by appointment only to ensure adequate time and staff. Appointments are available Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. Please call 520-327-6088, ext. 103 to make an appointment.

Because of the high volume of customers we assist, we cannot provide owner-attended services. If you wish to remain with your pet at the time of euthanasia, please contact a full-service veterinary clinic.

Please note, HSSA offers humane euthanasia by injection for animals that are incurably ill, aged, badly injured, etc. We do not euthanize healthy animals at the owner’s request, but can suggest available alternatives. Call 520-327-6088 for more information.

How to cope with your grief Pet Loss Support Group

Whether the result of a natural death, accident, illness, your decision to euthanize, or their disappearance, the feelings you have over the loss of your beloved pet can seem overwhelming. Know that your feelings are natural, as painful as they may be.

In our culture, when a pet dies, there are some who may not understand how painful this loss can be. To experience the sweet and deep love possible between a person and pet is a gift. With this gift of strong love comes a corresponding response of strong grief. HSSA offers a support group for people who have suffered the loss of a pet.

Pet Loss Support Groups for both adults and children and family will be offered starting Fall of 2023. To learn more, please email ikoopmanleyva@hssaz.org.  

In the meantime, if interested in attending grief support, please call Murray Flagg through Harmony Hospice at (520) 284-9334 or email mflagg@harmonyhospice.org
